The Alpro Hardware Division of IEC Limited has announced the release of the new Alpro PB86 proximity switch.
Designed to be used in conjunction with the full range of Alpro electric strikes, electric bolts and general access control products out in the field, this proximity switch offers contactless features offering sterile and hygienic operation.
The switch has a proximity distance adjustable from 5-20cms, along with an adjustable relay trigger from 1 to 9 seconds. The switch has easy indication of operation status and can be operated remotely by a small keypad. The switch is suitable for indoor use only.
A simple swipe of the hand operates the switch, ensuring no contact is required. A feature especially important with the onset of MRSA and other infectious bacteria currently prevalent in hospitals and other communal areas.
Keith Parry Alpro's Divisional Sales Manager commented "In line with our ongoing product development and taking full cognisance of the macro environment, we have brought this new proximity switch to the market, to fulfil market requirements. It is competitively priced and along with Alpro's proven track record of service and reliability will prove to be a winner. Once again reinforcing Alpro's commitment to excellence, making us first choice for locking products".
